Spring 2018 Special Elections
The Associated Student Body of American River College will be hosting special elections on September 26th-27th, 5:00am-11:30pm each day. Students are encouraged to learn more, run for a position, attend candidate forums and vote. There are no voting stations on campus. Students will be able to vote from any computer or mobile device with internet access.
What is the role of the student association?
The student association is the official organization that represents students and consists of the Clubs and Events Board (CAEB) and Student Senate. Student leaders from each board are committed to advocating for students' rights, improving the campus culture and developing transferable leadership skills. Specifically, the Clubs and Events Board functions to promote student involvement and activities, while the Student Senate functions to advocate for the common interests of students.
How do I get involved?
Each college is always looking for students interested in leadership development. If you are open to learning and working with others, then consider joining the student association.
Why should I vote?
Voting in the student elections is a privilege only for currently enrolled Los Rios students. Even though voting only takes a few minutes, elected student leaders make lasting changes to the campus environment and student experience.
